In November, the campus was awarded a generous grant from the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation (LEF) to purchase supplies to support BEAMS, including stomp rockets.

In their Bobcat Dens, classes rotate outside to experience force and motion first-hand. 

Throughout the school year, each student will get to experience both setup and launching the rockets.
